Gunjack, for the Samsung Gear VR, is a first-person arcade shooter built from the ground up for virtual reality. With its intuitive controls and intense, full-immersion action, Gunjack is the ultimate pick-up-and-play virtual reality experience.

It's the next step, but not exactly perfected yet..especially the quality of the video has a lot to be desired. The 360 aspect is the best immersive experience one can get from a device like this..
